MTA Talmidim End Year With Annual Trips

Rabbi Mendelson’s 11th grade shiur has been busy this entire year. To celebrate their end-of-year accomplishments, the talmidim went on a couple meaningful trips with their rebbi to mark the occasion. One such trip was to visit the shul of Rav Aharon Kahn, rosh yeshiva at Yeshiva University, where over 100 ba’al habatim spend their mornings learning, before heading to work in the afternoon. It is an incredible sight, seeing so many adults in the professional world who have dedicated their mornings to Torah learning before heading to the workplace. This practice has now been adopted in other shuls, and hopefully it will continue to spread. The talmidim enjoyed a BBQ at Rabbi Mendelson’s home following this visit.

Another trip that has become a tradition in Rabbi Mendelson’s shiur, is taking a trip to the Little Red Lighthouse. There is a children’s book that was written about this lighthouse, and it is located on the New York side, at the base of the George Washington Bridge. Walking the few blocks from the yeshiva, and being treated to a beautiful view of the East River at the base of the bridge, was a highlight of the day. To cap off the trip, the talmidim stopped for pizza and doughnuts on their return to the Yeshiva University campus. Thank you Rabbi Mendelson for helping the talmidim grow in their Torah learning throughout the year, and treating them to unique experiences as well!
